    Oh dear, IDK123, you do know who you're talking to, right? I'd have to have a lot of mental energy to get through an article like that... Hehe...

    It's true, but what's also true is that I read that before. I already forgot everything. :P

    When I say 100 types, I refer to a contingency for specificness. They are provoking complication. Where the MBTI has grasp of the boundaries of personality in its constructed form, Socionics does not bracket its similarities. It is extravagant.

    I would respectfully disagree but I'm not exactly sure of what you're trying to say. Function in Socionics refers to the order of preference (e.g. Leading function, Creative function etc.) while Information element refers to the 'objective' mental processes (e.g. Ti, Se etc.). I'll assume you're using the MBTI definition of function but apologise in advance if this is not the case

    Mathematical reasoning? Are we looking for formulas? I'm not sure if I've ever thought about psychology, philosophy or even one's personality in this way before (if L = love received and S = self-worth then... ). Socionic's premise is that everyone uses every information element, but with a greater or lesser proficiency. Proficiency with a certain element automatically determines how you other connected elements.

    For example, as an ILE (ENTP) I use my Ne near constantly to imagine unusual possibilities and day dream about the potential of the unknown. Thus when it comes to using Se (which is in direct competition with Ne) I find it very difficult to get things finished just because they need to be, finding myself procrastinating and going off and doing something else less rigid (curse you Se! ). For me this a perfect illustration of formal logic and its where Socionics really shines.
    There is no order of usage, rather implied when one doesn't use the first function, he uses the third. One is pleased by the fifth and one realizes problems with the sixth function. One supposedly creates and reflects with their second. Conceptual yet nominal.
    Lies! Slander!
    Socionics is all about preference of usage and how each Function makes up a distinct part of our personality. Its not really as simple as 1st trumps 3rd, or that any Function can be summed up in one word (they're mere labels). The interweb decrees it!

    But I'm no socionicist
    Whoops! My bad (one hasty edit later) I mixed up the 5th and 6th functions, please don't sacrifice me to your god
    Didn't really want to get into this one, but as stated earlier Socionics considers all eight Information Elements relevant to one's type. However, for simplicity and brevity, standard notation is to list the Ego functions (1st, 2nd) followed by Super-Id functions (5th, 6th).
    I believe Socionics is quite limited in the knowledge that every type is incompletely conceivable. It is designed for those who can't accept truth thus rather accept some personal understanding.
    Pretentious much? Got a pamphlet and a place to sign up so I can receive this 'truth'? Nah, I'm just joshing you
    There is no proof of negative connotation which is why I am not omitting it, but I'd rather not spend time studying what I think as useless at this moment.
    Go you double negative! Whatever floats your boat I am happy to let others reach their own conclusions and enjoy life to their own choosing. Mahalo.
    What I really think the socionicists are doing ineffectively is defining sixteen types out of say a hundred possible types, and expecting people to fit into one of them. They're setting themselves up for future complication, and more inevitably a lack of feedback.
    Are we talking about MBTI or Socionics (or both)? Secretly though, I share your concern with this criminal lack of efficiency and yet nobody takes me seriously! Well, we'll see who they come running to when their world falls apart...
    Soon most people will begin to realize how similar all the functions are to one another, and that the socionicists are just rewriting profiles without any validity of structure.
    Viva La Revolucion!
    I think the great thing about MBTI and Socionics is that they in fact show how similar we are all are. By analyzing the small differences between us we can learn that though someone may think differently from you, we are all essential human

    I would along with wikisocion recommend Rick DeLong other project, his socionics blog. It has lot's of interesting articles on socionics. If anybody is interested.

    Great, many thanks!

    I've inadvertently checked out Rick's blog before, but didn't realize he was involved with wikisocion. I'm a big fan of how relaxed and unpretentious wikisocion is and will definitely have check his blog out (if only for a refreshing view of socionics). Rick seems like a friendly guy with a good sense of humour - two things that can never be overated

    I found another different approach to the function system from Socionics PoV. This makes some functions more graspable and understandable but narrows their impact radius down on the other hand:

    Se = sensation of volition, under which it understands the outer abilities of objects, forms and colors, aswell as strength of will and energy

    Si = sensation of senses, whereby it sums up the perception of health, the taste of meals or the sensation of sexuality

    Ne = probabilty intuition, what is the ability to see the basics or the potential

    Ni = time intuition, whereby informations are summed up on a time axis, which allows future planning

    Te = Activity Logik, which deals with an encyclopedic knowledge and aspects of moneymaking

    Ti = Structure Logik, which deals with the development of unambiguous theorethical systems or statements

    Fe = Emotion Ethics, deals with the ability to develop morales and emotions

    Fi = Relation Ethics, which deals mainly with the emotions of cohabitation, what compasses things like sympathy or antipathy.

    -------------

    At first glance that sounds quiete weirdo and things like time intuition, I havent grasped fully yet, to understand whats meant by it.

    To me its one of the first systems that ventures deeper into things and doesnt stop with superficial evaluations of like all leading Ne people are idea people. Because the socionics system deals with all 8th functions in all types and therefore naturally makes more sense.

    Like the antic statement from mbticentral stated, why should a Ti be bad at Te and vice versa ?!

    What Socionics did made sense, as far as trying to make the last letters represent dominance rather than extraversion. But for them to remove the J/P and then put them back with new meanings causes a lot of confusion (when I see someone's code with the lowercase j/p, I don't know if they're using Socionics, or they're just uncertain of that preference, which is what that means elsewhere).
    What they should have done is use different letters. Instead of "J", use "R" for Jung's "rational" and then another letter/word for "irrational".

    that's interesting entropie...apparently some test thinks my si is completely unused...i'm thinking this is no good.

    Awww. You're as eloquent as an Italian ENTp buddy I have.

    I've found many posts where INTPs for some reason or another immediately denounce Socionics. It's strange. I believe they're happy with "discovering" something and make it their own. Any second "discoveries" aren't permitted because their first is their baby : )

    if i remember right, socionics is based more on how the person behaves, while mbti is about how the person thinks. also those socionics descriptions have some aspects on physical structures that are total bullshit, like face structure etc.

    in most cases this would translate to mbti INTP
    INTjs have a characteristic ascetic face. There are two reason for this. Firstly the facial structure itself is often reminiscent of ancient portraits because of its angularity and composition of the features, like cheekbone and eyebrow arcs. Secondly their facial expression is often accepted as emotionless and severe. Their face is usually pale or bloodless. Males often have a short haircut.

    In many cases INTjs are slim. Their stomach is usually placed ahead of the chest giving them their characteristic posture. Their gait is somewhat unsure, wavering slightly. Sometimes it seems like they are not sure where they are going. This becomes more obvious in moments of excitement.
    as you can see most of this kind of speculation is totally ridiculous.

    the truth is that both of these system leave out many things from personality that effect the persons behavior, like how the person was raised etc. since these things are left out, its really hard and really limited to talk about behavior based on this typology, because of this socionics kinda fails.

    i dont think socionics is totally crap tho, how could it be since it has so much similarities with mbti ?
